Summary: 1) There does not exist a symmetric block design 2-( 85,28,9 ) on which operates the automorphism group of order 14. 2) Frobenius group of order 34 cannot operate on a symmetric design with parameters ( 154,18,2 ).

Keywords: Group, automorphism, orbital structure, masonry structures, reconstruction, energy functional, topographical surface, perspective, digitizing, filtering.

Research goals: - the construction of special mathematical structures so called designs and its application in architecture and urbanism Design theory is a part of a great mathematical discipline "Finite geometry" with closed connections to Group theory. We consider finite symmetric designs with parameters (v,k,l), where v is number of points and so many subsets of points called blocks, such that each block contains k points and any two points are incident with l blocks. A frequent approach is the investigation and construction of design is that of using various automorphism groups. -an innovative approach to descriptive geometry using CAGD and application in engineering graphics education. Computer graphics and Geometric Modeling (CAD-DG Solid Modeling System) play an extremly important role in instruction for engineering design. Computer modeling allows for the creation of complete cycle of design-from initial concept to final design specifications needed for production. -cone perspectives, as a generalization of linear perspective. Applications on constructions with regard to the interventions on topographic surfaces. Research of the possibilities for computer aided processing of cone perspective. -to study some problems of equilibrium of masonry structures ( treated as unilateral no-tension material ) -mathematical formulation of a problem with specific constitutive relations, existence theorems and numerical procedures. -to make a wide base of data about mechanical behaviour of characteristic geomertic forms of structures under standard loads. This could be used: a) for edukation of students b) in reconstruction of cultural heritage as a base of comparable model for static or dynamic analysis of structure.
